Beach Cleanups!

Surfrider hosts a monthly beach cleanup on the 4th Saturday of each month. Most of the items collected at beach cleanups are plastic that don’t truly biodegrade. It is important to host cleanups because we want to help protect the coastal wildlife that we love! Below you will find what to wear, our liability waiver form, where to park, and the 2019 scheduled beach cleanups.

For all beach cleanups, please wear:

  • comfortable clothes
  • closed toed shoes
  • sunscreen

Please remember to bring your own water and snacks

All volunteers are welcome to participate, but must sign a liability waiver found here.

*Pre-­registration is not required unless your group is larger than 25 people.* If you plan on bringing a group larger than 25, please email us with how many people you expect at: beachcleanups@ventura.surfrider.org

Volunteers under 18 MUST have a parent or guardian present at the beginning of the cleanup to sign a liability waiver before the minor can participate. You can download the waiver again, here. We will provide all supplies, but volunteers are always welcome to bring their own work gloves, trash bag/bucket, and/or reusable water bottle to reduce waste.

Please be prepared to fill out a data card of all the trash you pick up. We need this information to help find solutions for the main sources of trash on our beaches! Check out what we found in 2015 and 2016.

Thank you for your interest in helping keep our beaches clean. Look for the Surfrider tent when you arrive at a beach cleanup to check in!

*If there is weather such as heavy rain or strong winds, we will post any cancellation updates to our Facebook page here.*

Where to park at California Street – The Surfrider tent and check in is located where C Street meets the Promenade. The Crowne Plaza Hotel has graciously offered free valet parking for volunteers! Please mention Surfrider beach cleanup when you arrive and tip when you leave.

Additional parking is available at the multi-level parking structure, but they charge and we don’t validate. There are a couple of free parking options within a short walk. The free parking on Paseo De Playa often fills up quickly, but the free parking off Front St. typically has space, then you can take the walking bridge over the freeway to the promenade.
